Specialties

Dr. Kathryn N Hester has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Don't take her on the first impression!

I've been a patient of Dr Naus Hester for several years. Not even sure how many now. I have several doctor's on my team one of which is she. She's caring and has explained how my health problems overlap and things i can do for relief. She's very knowledgeable and cares about her patients.

Dr Hester is, indeed, direct. Some people can't deal with that, and that is their loss. She is an excellent Rheumatilogist and diagnostician. She cares about her patients, and easing their pain. She's compassionate, and had called me at home several times to discuss something. Her staff is knowledgable, and works hard to settle insurance problems. I've seen other doctors, and Dr Hester is "the one". Go for it!

I can truly give Dr Hester with ease a five STAR rating. The staff and Dr Hester show their kindness . After 2 decades of treatment - i guess I plateau is my meds. With this change my health decline. After months of sever pain I decided to change DR'S . She is caring not only to your health but also the financial side (COST OF MEDS). Her staff searched the different ways they help me lower the cost without lowering my health. I told Dr Hester that I am feeling better than i had in months- Dr.Hester told me she does not want me to feel better but GREAT. Also one last note, the different in my health was noted by my Bank's C. Card. Yes, Bank - they saw more outdoor monetary activities rather then purchases online. Great Doctor.

So far so good. This is my second rheumatologist and I definitely prefer a younger Doctor that listens than an older Doctor who has seen it all knows ...
